Filter Array not functioning correctly

I currently have a flow that will send out List Item variables weekly. When a new list item is created for the prior week, could be 1 or more, a flow is ran that will pull all values from the sharepoint list. The filter array will then review the field Created on the sharepoint list variable and review for the matching filter array condition. See Below.

Up till this week, this was working just fine, but now has stopped. Screenshots below will show what i get now as compared to what i use to get

Hi @FKarluk ,

 

Have you checked if there are any items that were created during last 7 days in that list?

 

The output is expected to change, as you are applying to get only last 7 days of items. It might just be that no one has created any items last week?

 

Please let me know if this is the case, or it's something else.

 

Hope this helps 🙂


Kind Regards,

Shaik Sha

Yes. I have checked. I created test items myself to confirm

Hi @FKarluk ,

 

Why don't you add a filter condition to the get items itself?

Created ge '@{addDays(utcNow(), -7)}'

 

Then you can check what's going wrong down the line

By doing this, it did return data but now my variable array now display erroneous data. The variable i have parses through the information to provide specific data in a html table format. This made it worse. It displays data but the data it displays now is not readable.

It should display like this

Hi @FKarluk ,

 

That's the raw data from the SharePoint list. If you want to select a specific columns with specific formatting, you can use a Select statement before you use it in other actions.

 

If you notice from your screenshots, the output of the Filter is same as the output now you're getting from GetItems.

 

By using select statement, you can both parse the data and give them new column names.

 

Kind Regards,

Shaik Sha

 

When i remove the filter array to just use the select statement, i get an error stating the From needs to be an array. Im sorry, im very new to this and had this set a certain way and it was working. Now its not randomly 

 

FKarluk_0-1645210577513.png

 

What should i put before my select statement so the From in the statement could be a array.

In your select statement - The From field should be set to value not Body

Making great headway here but now comes the next issue. With the filter in the Get Items,  "Created ge '@{addDays(utcNow(), -7, 'yyyy-MM-dd')}'" its pulling data from last week and this week. When this flow runs, it should only the prior weeks data. Not to include this weeks. So if this flow runs monday, it should only show data 02/7 through 02/11.

@FKarluk 

You need to include another filter using a lt or le operator.  You can chain filters with an "and".

In effect you want to create a date range rath than just saying all items greater than or equal to a specified date.

Here is a link for more info on OData filters

Hi @FKarluk 

 

As @ScottShearer  suggested, you need to use additional filters in combination to get the required filter. 

 

In case your requirement is to get last weeks reports, no matter when the flow is running during the current week, then you can use something like below,

 

Created ge '@{addDays(utcNow(), sub(0,add(7,dayOfWeek(utcNow()))),'yyyy-MM-dd')}' and Created le '@{addDays(utcNow(), sub(0,dayOfWeek(utcNow())), 'yyyy-MM-dd')}'

 

This is equivalent to "Created > startOfLastWeek and Created < startOfCurrentWeek"

 

Hope this helps 🙂


Kind Regards,
